Recently revitalized Lido Marina Village has seen a surge of activity these days—including the opening of JSH Marina Cafe, a cozy, 35-seat resto offering an innovative, quality-rich and locally-inspired plant-based and eggs menu for breakfast and lunch.

When Alex Matthews and Greg Alterman founded JSH (Juice Served Here) in 2012, they were both working in the fashion industry but felt inspired to create wellness-focused juices. With a loyal celebrity clientele in L.A., the duo expanded their vision, a flagship concept to Orange County. “At Juice Served Here, we’ve been very successful by following our ‘Never Conventional’ mantra, and our first-ever restaurant—JSH Marina Café—also will be characterized by its originality,” expresses Matthews. Original indeed. Expect wholesome items such as smoothie bowls with fresh berries, avocado or coddled eggs over fresh-baked, artisanal breads and tasty macadamia nut lattes, along with JSH’s traditional cold-pressed juices, custom tonics and flavorful juice shots aimed to support skin and immune system health. 

Whether an all-around foodie or health and wellness guru, one is bound to delight in some of these delectable pleasures. “We envision JSH Marina Café quickly becoming a daily ritual for our clients as part of their active, healthy lifestyles,” says Matthews.
